  1. Android Auto-Not Working

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Cadillac ELR
    Are there any tricks to get Android Auto to work? I recently purchased a 2016 ELR and simply can't get it to work. I have Android Auto installed on my Motorola Droid phone. When I use any of the USB connections, I see the phone charging, I might add in "slow charge" mode. The CUE system does...
  2. Android Auto Screen is blank

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    This started happening last week. Plug in phone before I get going. The android Auto Button appears on the infotainment screen. Press it and it just goes black. I left it there for 20 min one day on way home never gave anything but black screen. Phone thinks its in android auto mode. Tried...
  3. Android Auto - Samsung S7 - Lost GPS

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    I have a 2017 Volt. My Samsung S7 just updated the OS to “Oreo”. Ever since, I have been unable to use the nav apps through Android Auto. It lets me set up the trip, but after I start driving, a dialog bubble pops up on the map stating “Lost GPS” or “Searching for GPS” and it stops giving...
  4. Android Auto Click Bypass

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Is there any way to increase or uncap the number of interactions you can have with Android Auto before it locks you out? I really don't think the voice interface is good enough yet, and want the option of clicking around a bit more. It looks like a lot of manufacturers are using the parking...

  6. Pixel XL with 2017 Volt Question

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    Hello All: I'm new poster (but I've been a happy lurker for a while). I am likely taking advantage of an email offer I got from GM to "Pull Ahead" in the lease on my 2015 Volt and get a 2017 a few months earlier than I expected. I know the gen II Volt has Android Auto functions. Will a Google...
  7. 3D printed drop-in smartphone dock for my Volt

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Just sharing my recent design for a smartphone car dock/mount/cradle/charger for my Galaxy S7 Edge in my 2016 Volt. I had a wireless charger that I liked but I wanted one that would plug into USB to support Android Auto integration. The drop-in design is custom fitted, incredibly secure, and...
  8. wireless charging and android auto

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    So I like android auto, and I also like wireless charging. I have a base model 2016, so I have a wireless charging cradle which is great. In order to get android auto working, it requires me plugging into the USB anyway. Is there a way to get AA working over bluetooth/wifi? According to this...
  9. Wireless Phone Charger Modifications (Gen 2)

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    The liner that holds the phone against the front edge of the phone charging slot is too thick on the front, it creates distance which makes wireless charging not work. It's also a bit tight around the edges to fit with my case (and removing the case is WAY more inconvenient than plugging in, so...
  10. Blown fuse during Android Auto update

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Gen2 Volt
    I'm posting to see if anyone has some insight as to whether this was due to an error on the part of the technician or just random chance. I brought my new 2016 Volt (~300 miles) in for the Android Auto update at the dealership today. I believe it was their first time doing this update, as...
  11. Media not always accessible on USB flash drive, if phone connected by Bluetooth

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I never know, when I start the 2017 Volt, whether I'm going to be able to access the music on the USB flash drive or not. Sometimes it works, sometimes the Volt doesn't recognize the flash drive (even if it was in use, when I last turned the car off). If I turn off the phone's Bluetooth -...
  12. Android Auto phone requirement is awkward and annoying

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    For those who are having problems getting AA to work, a heavy duty USB cable is a must. I learned this the hard way, but now having trouble keeping the thing plugged into the phone's mini jack. IMHO Chevy should underwrite development of a simpler phone-like device without cameras, display...
  13. No indication that my Android Auto upgrade was successful

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    I just had the dealer install the Android Auto upgrade and there doesn't seem to be any indication of success. I plugged in my LG L33L with Lollipop 5.0.1 and nothing. Everything looks the same and the Projection button still complains about not being connected to a device on a USB port. My...

  15. Where's the Android Auto button?

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    I bought a '15 Volt last year and love the Nav system. We now also have a new '16 Volt with Nav. The turn-by turn system is a real turn off, so I bought an LG phone with Lollipop OS as required. Plugged it onto the new car's USB port and... nothing. The phone buzzed but that's it. I...
